About this Item

p. [321]-480 ; 23 cm; ill. Original wraps are soiled w/ some chipping to extremities. Some loss to tail of spine. 1" closed tear to back cover. Miniscule Bryn Mawr stamp to top left corner of cover along w/ "Maurin no. 2" written in pen (presumably referring to Mario Maurin whose piece on Zola is featured. He was Professor Emeritus of French at Bryn Mawr and his father was Joaquin Martin, social and political activist and co-founder of POUM (Partido Obrero Unificacion Marxista) during the Spanish Civil War. No way to verify whether this was Maurin's copy). Pages are browned, otherwise unblemished. Beckett first wrote this one-act radio play at the suggestion of the BBC in 1956. It was produced in January of 1957 and was quickly followed by English (Faber & Faber) and American (Grove Press) editions. The play was first translated into French by Roger Pinget as "Tous ceux qui tombent" and published in "The New Letters." It's hard to believe that the Grove or Faber editions preceded the French one.

Store Description

I, the Andalusia Bookman, have a stock of over 100,000 covering a wide range of items specializing in 19th and 18th c. illustrated books, chromolithos, Philadelphiana, rare anthropology, early hermeneutics, Natural history, first editions and signed items, Beat lit, '60's material, unusual occult, erotica and esoterica. This is my personal collection from which I am de-accessing most everything, including a vast amount of ephemera, art work (steel engravings, pouchoir, collotype), movie posters (of the 1940's - 50's) and a mass of important 19th c. bound periodicals (Oology to Archeology, Mathematics, Botany, Knitting), and 20th c. Art journals, Italian Fascist publications, etc., culled from Walter J. Johnson's liquidation, as well as a collection rare jazz records, including 100's of Boogie Woogie and BeBop '78s, And much more, just ask. I was previously established as The Book Merchants, the Philadelphia's Riverside Book Fair and 30th Street Station Book Fair. In 1991 I purchased the stock of Samuel Kleinman's legendary Schuylkill Book and Curio Shop of 4207 Lancaster Ave., Phila. PA.
